Here is an RR from all the way back July 4 & 11, 07 !!
We had only lived in the area for a year or so..

This was out first time to Breaks...

July 4,07
We rode to the Ky & Va. Breaks Interstate park... A nice park , with a huge lodge, and places for enjoying....

They have a Grand Canyon...

It was a great view....Yuppers I did get yelled at by Highbinder...

But I did get this shot !!!

There is a train tunnel and the Big Sandy

How it all got started. And named..

WE even saw a Mountain Lizard...

It was a long walk back up from the viewing...

And like most parks they had a nice little museum

Ok I'll admit it I really dig Fossils

On the hike back we found a cabin I let 'Binder knock on the door....

Now to get to this place and back we did a lot of cool twisties !!!


This was strange.... This bridge just ended to no where.... From what we was told the state was going to join the two hollers and then just didn't put in a road.. Go figure....

Cud Zoo can be very cool looking..

We really had a nice ride .. It's fun to find new cool roads...That are just full of twisties....And just about in the back yard....Well almost....

Till next time...




July 11.07

We Rode to the New River Gorge....Took some of our favorite roads to get there.... This is in W.V....

I just love to take photos of certain trees... The tree in the fore ground is just cool

They sure built an elaborate board walk....

There was a whole lotta of steps..... But very cool....

A super neat bridge !!!!

This is the original bridge that went across the gorge.....LOL... I wouldn't want to jump off that one.. Hehehehe ;D

This is the famous Bridge Day Bridge... The one that the Co. Closes the road down and people Bungee jump and Hang glide off The railing They also fill the one side of the road with vendors.....You know crafts n such...

Driving on top of the bridge had some great views...I had to stand tall and hold the camera way up to get this...The railing is up their ~Just level with my head sitting in the saddle on the bike....

This Bush/Tree really was intriguing... The leaves are as big as me !!! And i don't know what it is.... And all my plant books are still packed away !!!!!

Now it's off to the Hawks nest for some dinner...

Part 2 ...

Ok we are now at the Hawks Nest S.P.
They had a very nice lodge ~Some what modern....
This is a lot of brick....

The Lodge had a nice Tram.... Nope didn't take a ride...

We ate in their restaurant... The prices where fair. Surprising...

Well getting ready to leave .. ....Looks almost Government~ish.. hehehehe :love:

We then headed to The Mystery Hole...

Part 3

Ok this wasn't far from the Hawks nest so we are off to check it out.....
From what I know it's like the Oregon Vortex in Oregon state....
Found it on the site Roadside America.....A cool site to visit.....

The outside is well ~ that classic roadside America theme ~a little Corny

Now how many times have you seen this Werewolf ~at roadside places?


What does the small print say???

I though that was cute..... ::)

See what I can do with the Monkey(Ape)... We just had to do it....

The wording says it all.....


You are not allowed to take your camera in to the hole.... So we did the rule ...
It was a fun place it did put a smile on ones face and that's what it was all about...
The cost of the smile was $5 per person .. Hey it was worth it~ I was having a blast in the hole....... The person who built it did a wonderful job a real architect's mystery...
Then it was time to head home...

One of our few roads that we ride on that has NO curve on it for a few miles....
Our little rides from the 4th to that Sunday took us to...
Ky/Va.. Va.. W.V.....And a total miles of 1279 miles... Plus we went back home each night...

Till next time

Here's another one from 07...
I remember this trip it was just an overnight..
We both had a hankering for seafood..

Had a little craving for fresh sea food......
So we left the farm early Friday morning and headed to S.C....... And the beach... It was just for over night..

Here's a shot of Pilot Mt. in N.C.



We made a wrong turn... Yuppers I see where we are ..



The water was soooo cold..... But I had to go in...Water people are that way....



Looking for shells



Hahaha Don was looking for Mermaids.....



He thinks he found one...



Well your wondering if I ever got my sea food !!!! Yuppers the freshest you can get !!!!



This was a cool sand thingy....




Then we got up early Sat.morning...And headed home...Our last stop before getting home...



Oh yes one more cool thing TheBeast turned 99,000 on the trip~ Yeah!!!!!

Till next time...

Footnote.. That bike now has 157,000

All good, following along.

Heidi is baking a new recipe of Chocolate Chip Cookies...was just eating some of her home made bread....she's happy I think. All is good with us.

Samantha has decided she wants to breed gerbils and train cats....maybe be a Vet or something in that line and Georgi is full on GIRL. Just refitted today for yet another "size" if you know whuddimean-- not yet about boys, but you can see the tendencies.

I spent 12 hours in the car yesterday with Georgi bringing a friend from Texas' daughter to stay with relatives while she recuperates from an operation on her spine (Pansy's Help a kid thread). It was a very good time.

All is good--India in 6 days. I can't believe it. Big hugs to all there, 4 legged and 2.

How about a little farm stuff chat....
I checked the Cherry trees a few days ago ...
So I went on the quad and picked a Gallon milk pail full today ..
Yeah I hate picking Cherries with a .45 on the hip...

I was only going to pick 1 tree, then my Longhorns showed up so I felt much safer and pick some of the trees that the Bear picks....
I saw some Bear sign but didn't see any in person...

I had the whole herd helping me out,by pulling on the limbs as I stood on the top of the quad for height... ..

Now they thought they was helping me pick.. But to be truthful they never put any in the bucket !!! They ate way more then they put in the pail..
Pits and all... Silly cattle.... Ya got to love LongHorns !!!

Here's the first picking of the 2012 Cherries... We had a few late frosts this spring and wind storms and heavy rain .. Not very many to be had this year...
But I will get Highbinder to life me up in the tractor bucket and pick again for the higher ones, some time next week...

This should be enough for a pie



This weekend is also a planting sign ,So I'll try to get a good deal of the plants in the ground...As well as bean seeds.... It had been way to wet to get in the garden and till... As much as it needed... But HB got it caught up now....

I'm also back logged on 2 or 3 RR's I'll get them going real soon..

So keep an eye out...
Till next Time...
